Great video . Takes me back. Mine was a 1979 pocket rocket. Top end was over 85 (over 90 down a hill with the wind behind you). Don't think I ever drove it that slow though!! In those days the 3 feet between the car in front of you and the car coming in the opposite direction was where we lived. Not the cleverest in hindsight but never felt more alive. The reckless innocence of youth :-). Thanks again for posting.

I had one of these in 1982, just before the law changed for learners, limiting them to 125 and a restricted horsepower. I was around 20 years old and weighed next to nothing so the bike flew - 80mph was no problem, and 90 could be had down hill, chinning the tank :) - It would be interesting to see in hindsight if all those changes to the 125's and 50cc restrictions actually reduced the number of accidents as it claimed it would?

Doesn't quite have the original performance due to now running on lower energy E5 unleaded petrol (8.3 million calories per litre), compared to the higher energy leaded petrol (9.2 million calories per litre).
